Conservatorship Reform: From Complaints to Solutions

Attorney Thomas F. Coleman, legal director of Spectrum Institute, made a 45-minute presentation on April 12, 2021, at a National Guardianship Symposium.  His presentation identified parts of California’s probate conservatorship system that are broken – which is all of them.  He offered specific reform proposals and identified the officials and agencies to whom each one should be directed.  The approach he suggested for California could be adapted to any of the other 49 states which have guardianship or conservatorship systems that are not functioning as they should be – which is all of them.  Spectrum Institute can be commissioned to perform a problem/solution agency-specific plan for any state.  Contact us if you are interested in discussing this for your state.
